Nintendo Switch Sports Volleyball and Badminton First Thoughts Review

This review is going to be just for the first 20 minutes on Volleyball and Badminton with online play. Don't belittle those 20 minutes... they really gave my arms a workout!


Unlike many players who view this game who see it as one of the biggest nostalgia throwbacks and compare it with its Wii Sports predecessor way back in 2006. Apparently, for those who had the Wii Sports back in the day the latest rendition of Nintendo Switch Sports is a disappointment with not much variety etc... But what does that mean for the newbie? Absolutely nothing!


Well, there is just one little thing... at the moment 3rd party joycons are not supported and you can only play multiplayer on the Switch not the Switch Lite. But that should not be a show stopper if you already have the Switch, right? 


It's really not as bad as the "experts" make it out to be. If you are new to the world of Nintendo gamin, are thinking about it or looking for something fun and get a workout indoors as well, then this is one game you should definitely get! 

The game already comes with one leg strap for playing football/soccer
There’s a collection of 6 sports games, with the option to play on your own, online or locally with friends. AI will get involved if you don’t have enough people, and you have the option to change the difficulty in every sport.

Motion control is simple to pick up. If you've played the sport before, or know the basics, getting into the game is really easy.

Character customization options are also updated, but for those missing those blocky looking Wii characters there's that option as well. As you progress in the game, you get to unlock accessories and character customizations options. So more motivation to play more! 


Volleyball and Badminton

Volleyball has the most moments to learn, such as blocking, bumping and spiking, but they are relatively easier to pick up. Before you play online for the first time, there is also a tutorial which will "trail" and prepare you for all the needed moves. The online experience was really good and real-time. Pairing with strangers was fast (it's faster than getting a team in Pokemon Unite). There are 2 persons in a team and the winning team needs to get 5 points, then the game ends and it's on to the next set of games.

Badminton at the moment is definitely one of my favorites and also the reason why my arms are still aching. 😂 It was really fast paced, yet futo "hit" the shuttlecock to the back of the court. Depending on your opponent and how fast they can hit, you character can also slip and fall due to your frantic movement, which will cause you to miss a hit and sadly lose a point. But it's all in the name of good ol' fun. 


Verdict

So far with just volleyball and badminton, I am loving this game already and cannot wait to try the other games! The controls are simple to  It also will make a great motivate to exercise and play when friends come over. 

Stay tune as I will be reviewing more when I play more of the game... once my arms stop aching that is. 😂 But in the meanwhile. have you played Nintendo Switch Sports? If yes, which games did you like or did not like? And if not, are you planning to get the game? 
 
p.s. You can get the game here for under S$60!
